Jameis Winston's DNA reportedly matches assault victim's clothing

FSU quarterback Jameis Winston's DNA matches a sample taken from the underwear of a woman who has accused him of sexual assault, according to an analysis report obtained by ESPN.com.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement conducted the DNA analysis and the crime lab determined the chances of the DNA in the woman's underwear matching someone other than Winston was one in 2.2 trillion, according to ESPN.com.

Tallahassee police obtained a sexual assault kit on Dec. 7, 2012, when the woman reported the altercation took place at an off-campus apartment.

Winston's attorney, Tim Jansen, told the Orlando Sentinel on Nov. 13 Winston denied all accusations he had sexually assaulted a woman. He said his client had not been interviewed by police and he was perplexed the case he thought was closed had been referred to the state attorney.

The Tampa Bay Times reported the woman involved in the altercation is a FSU student from the Tampa area who was not able to identify Winston as the person who attacked her until January. The family of the victim released a statement to the Times Wednesday indicating an attorney acting on the woman's behalf had pushed the Tallahassee police for months to obtain Winston's DNA without success.

Winston's DNA was obtained via buccal swab he provided authorities investigating the case within the past week, although ESPN.com reported Wednesday night he still has not been interviewed by investigators in connection with the assault.

Chief assistant state attorney Georgia Cappleman, who is leading the review of the case handed over by the Tallahassee Police Department last week, told the Sentinel no timeline has been set for determining whether charges will be filed in connection with the case.

The family of the victim questioned Tallahassee police's handling of the investigation, arguing details never should have been released to Winston's attorney before the football player's DNA evidence was obtained and witnesses were interviewed. One of Winston's roommates was among the people the family of the victim expected police to question.

The family's statement indicated the victim was "devastated" to learn the Winston's attorney was aware of the pending case since February, allowing him “to create his defense and prepare witnesses.”

Jansen told the Sentinel in addition to Winston and the woman, there were two witnesses who signed sworn statements backing Winston's version of the events.

“We provided those witness statements to clarify the situation and assist the state attorney in closing the case,” Jansen said Nov. 13.

He declined to elaborate on the statements, indicating he did want to interfere with the pending investigation.

Jansen has since made limited public comments about the case.

When state attorney William Meggs was asked by ESPN.com whether his office could accurately investigate a high-profile case 11 months after the crime allegedly occurred, he told the website: "I'm pretty confident, as much as anybody can be. There are two kinds of evidence: testimonial and physical. We'll have what we have at the end of the day and then we'll evaluate what we have."

Before the 🤬 allegation was made public last week, Winston was favored to win the Heisman Trophy and the No. 2 FSU football team was on track to earn a spot the BCS National Championship Game.

The ongoing investigation has the potential to put both prestigious milestones in jeopardy.

If Winston is ultimately charged with a felony before the end of the season, Florida State athletic department policy states he must automatically be suspended from the team.

The high stakes were already of great concern to the victim's family.

The family wrote in a statement relatives were concerned about the woman’s safety on campus ever since January when she identified Winston as the person who assaulted her.

The family wrote Tallahassee police detective Scott Angulo told the victim's attorney, “Tallahassee was a big football town and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable.”
